  1. For last 3 months, Mangala spent more time in luxury hotels and foreign countries than he spent in Sri Lanka. He is enjoying free travel before get kicked out after 100 days. Current government does not have money to pay pension, but this useless Minister is wasting Sri Lankan money as there is no immediate need to run around to countries that are already friends. Be ready for FCID from next Government.

  2. The saddest part of the story is not that anyone had dared to comment on this article but too smart to be fooled yet again. Mangala is no stranger in this type of exercises and the Tamils and the whole world knows that. We had witnessed peace building efforts by the Indian Peace (?) Keeping force in the 80s. Premadasa . Chandrika, and Ranil Regimes in the 90’s, Eric Solheim brokered Peace Talks in the 2000s and the Mullivaikaal final talks with White Flags are all proved sour Grapes to the Tamils. Whoever talked peace wherever in this globe were carrying an empty spoons and no mouth is ready to open for such deceptive thanthirums, Peace building efforts in the North and East count most than those staged in Malaysia. Africa and now in Japan by Hon.Minister.
